Annual Homecoming Events 
Interesting To All Grads 

Many alumni spent an eventful 
Homecoming November 3. At 10:30 
the yearling footballers met the Wash- 
ington and Lee Freshmen, but failed 
fain a victory. While this was go- 
.ng on the Coed Physical Education De- 
partment was entertaining the ladies 
in a play-day with Marjorie Webster, 
American U. and Western Maryland. 
The day resulted in one win and two 
ties. 

Silvester Reelected 

Following these events, the Univer- 
sity entertained its guests at a bar- 
becue lunch at which there were over 
in present. Immediately after lunch 
the "M" Club held its annual meeting 
in the Trophy room of the Ritchie 
Coliseum. Major L. M. Silvester was 
again elected president of the club. 
After this, intramural athletes par- 
ticipated in a soccer game with the 
booters from Western Maryland, los- 
ing by the count of 4-2. 

The high light of the day was the 
eleventh annual clash with the Uni- 
versity of Virginia in Byrd Stadium. 
Some 5,000 persons witnessed the 
struggle, in addition to 2,000 school 
children who were guests of the Ath- 
letic Board. Maryland won the game 
20-10, showing some flashy football to 
th" delight of our old grads. 

Dance Colorful 

Following the game the fraternities 
and sororities held open house to their 
alumni. All organizations were pleas- 
ed with a sizable return. Kappa 
Alpha led among the fraternities 
with A. O. Pi and Kappa tieing for 
sorority honors. 

At 9:00 P. M. the Homecoming 
dance began with Jack Bruce and his 
Show Boat Band from Station KDKA 
furnishing the music. Incidently, many 
remarked that it was one of the best 
orchestras ever on the campus. 

More than 500 alumni returned for 
the reunion, but many did not register,

Flying Alumni 

Even Homecoming is a criterion of 
the rapid development of aeroplanes 
as a means of travel. Several Alumni 
returned for the Old Grad reunion by 
plane, landing at the College Park 
airport. Robert (Bob) Allen, '32, and 
Ed Wheeler, '29, both in the U. S. 
Army living Corp, flew from Langley

Shipley Facing Tough Job 
To Mold Winning Quintet 

BURTON SHIPLEY, serving his 
a< coach of the 
Maryland varsity basket-ball, is facing 
a tough 18-game schedule with about 
the hardi on his hands since ho 

took the helm hack in the season of 
1-24. That was the first season 
that Maryland put basket-ball on a 
real basis, and "Ship" proceeded to put 
irmly among the nation's leaders. 
Shipley, in the past 10 years, has 
won 1 1 T and lost 53 games dining- the 
on, a remarkable record. 
idering the caliber of opposition. 
This is an average of 63 per cent 
victories, and Shipley will find it diffi- 
cult til that ratio this year. 

Only One Regular Left 

Buscher, who played guard 

last year, but who may be shifted to 

forward, is the only 1933-34 regular 

left. Three others are left from last 

on, including Vic Willis, tall cen- 

Norwood Sothoron, guard, and Al- 

Rabbitt, forward. 

There are only five others on the 

id. with Hill Andorka and Charlie

Varsity Boxing Team Due 
To Have Successful Year 

Cll JACK HARMONY'S varsity 
boxing team, which will figure in 
eight meets, is going to be pretty hard 
;et along with this season that is 
lor its opponents. 

With a letter man available for six 
the eight (dasses and capable talent 
for the two other divisions, Harmony 
may even better the great season of 
1934. He has been strengthened in 
the 115-pound class by the return of 
Jimmy Young, has insignia winners 
for all other weights, except the light- 
heavy, and John Gormley, soph full- 
back of the football team, promises to 
fill in there in fine shape. 

Stew McGaw, who won the 1934 
Southern Conference light -heavy 
ciown, is slated to do his punch-trad- 
ing in the KJo-pound class, and he can 
make that poundage without difficulty. 

Farrell Is Uncertain 

Al Farrell. runner-up for the con- 
ference heavy crown, suffered a broken 
nose in football and may have to fore- 
go the ring. However, Carl Stalfort 
and John Birkland, the regular grid 
tacklers, can hold the heavyweight fort 
and, either might beat out Farrell if 
he is allowed to continue boxing. Stal- 
fort won his letter last season and 
Birkland is a soph with a "rep." 

Bill Waller, 12.",; Dick Babcock, 135; 
Walter Webb, 145, and Lyman Mc- 
Aboy, 155, are other aces left over from 
1934, while Ivan Xedomatsky, 135, 
and Mike Lombardo, 155, are new- 
comers who bid fair to be sensations. 

Harold Burns, the best 145-pounder 




John W. Harmony 



at Maryland, may add more joy to the 
following of the spoit, if he is able to 
report. He had a leg operation re- 
cently, due to an accident outside of 
athletics, but expects to be O. K.

Comments From Indiana 

The Alumni, no doubt, will be in- 
terested in the following excerpt from 
the "Casual Comment" column of the 
Bloomington "Evening World," about 
the Indiana-Maryland football game; 

"The fans must have thought sports 
writers were just slinging hooey when 
they said that Bo McMillin had de- 
cided to fight fire with fire and would 
have his boys meet the Marylanders 
in a wide open exhibition of offensive 
football. 

"Well, the joke may have been on 
us when the fans didn't believe all we 
told them, but the joke was on the 
fans who stayed at home Saturday 
afternoon in sublime ignorance of the 
fact that thunder was popping loose 
in a big way in the Memorial Stadium. 

"When the smoke pulled away from 

the torrid battle and Indiana was on 

top 17-11, Crimson grid fans had lots 

lay in praise of their own men. 

but they didn't forgel the great team 
from College Park. There was uni- 
al demand for another game some- 
time in the future. 

"Maryland came to Bloomington 
promising plenty of tire. m.I a 

whirlwind passing attack. Usually 

fade out toward the 

middle of the game and the two 
eh- ttle down to a punting 

duel Or ■ battle it out on the 

"Not s,, with Maryland! From their 



very first play to the last the Terra- 
pins made the air dark with passes. 
Seven Straight were completed in one 

series and ended in a touchdown. 
Baskel ball teams we have seen were 
laid to shame by the ball - handling 
those Old Liners did with the oval. 

"Things looked pretty dark when 
Indiana led 17-7, but not for long. 
That great end. Vic Willis, Btaged the 
finest exhibition id' wing play it has 
ever been the privilege of this writer 

to witness siiue seeing Wesley Feslei 
turn it on for Ohio State some years 

"The game was the cleanest this 
writer has seen in eight years of foot- 
ball coverage. Despite the terrific 
fighting on the part of both teams, 
only three penalties were called, all 
for offsides. 

"In the closing minutes, with every- 
one excited, Vic Willis was thrown by 
an Indiana tackier into the Indiana 
bench and the bench-warmers thrown 
to the ground. Did Willis get up mad, 
as would have been quite natural un- 
der the circumstances? He picked 
himself out of the heap of players, 
benches and equipment with a big 
grin on his face. And did the fans 
like it? The cheer given him was an 
answer." 



12 Old Line Gridmen Share 

In Registering 143 Points 

Maryland's varsity eleven registered 
143 points during the season and 12 
players figured in the scoring. Nor- 
wood Sothoron and Bill Guckeyson, 
with 24 each, led the parade with the 
others as follows: 

George Sachs, 18; Jack Stonebraker, 
Hi; Karl Widmyer, 15; John Gormley, 
10; Joe Crecca, John Simpson, Cole- 
man Headley, Vic Willis and Buddy 
Vaeger, 6 each; and Ed Daly, 4. 

All are backs, except Simpson and 
Willis. Simpson intercepted a Florida 
pass to count and Willis blocked an 
Indiana punt and recovered the ball 
to get his 6-pointer. He also threw a 
V. M. I. ball carrier for a safety. 



Many Alumni Prominent 

In Political Activities 

Many University Alumni were 
among the political paticipants in the 
i lections. Governor-elect 
11 any W. Nice is a graduate of the 
Law School of '98. His rival, Gover- 
nor Albert C. Ritchie, is also a gradu- 
ate of the same school. In the pri- 
maries Governor Ritchie was opposed 
by Dr. Charles Conley, a graduate of 
the University Medical School of '98. 

Herbert O'Conor, newly elected 
Attorney General, is also a graduate 
of the Law School, as well as Lans- 
dale Sasser, State Senator. Hugh 
Allen Meade, a candidate for Speaker 
of the House of Delegates, is another 
of the University's Law graduates. 

Re-elected To Congress 

Honorable W. P. Cole, '3 0, Stephen 
W. Gambrill, '92, and T. Alan Golds- 
borough, '02, were re-elected by com- 
fortable majorities to the U. -S. Con- 
gress. In the United States Senate, 
the University has 100, r representa- 
tion, George L. Radcliffe, '09, Senator- 
elect, and Millard E. Tydings, '10, 
Senior Senator, are both graduates 
of the Law School. Tydings also 
graduated from the College Park 
School in Engineering. 

Probably more than these mention- 
ed were victorious in county cam- 
paigns. In Prince George's County. 
Egbert Tingley, '27, was elected to the 
House of Delegates, while over in 
Montgomery County, Thomas C. Kelly, 
Jr., '26, became a judge of the Or- 
phan's Court. In Baltimore City, 
Frank Every was elected to the State 
Senate. Washington County sends 
Henry Holzapfel. 3rd., '29, as a dele- 
gate to the Legislature. 

The infant Alumni to win seats in 
the House of Delegates are John 
Clark, '34, former chairman of the 
student Democratic Club, and John 
F. Webster, Jr., '34, a member of the 
same club.

More \lumni Send Sons And 

Daughters To The Universitj 

Reports from the Registrar's office 
show that each year more sons, daugh- 
ters, or relatives of former grads 
enter the University at College Park. 

This year more than 126 freshmen 
have family connect ions with former 
students. This is an increase of BO 
over the number to register last year. 

Tho increase indicates encouraging 
interest and loyalty that former stu- 
dents have for their Alma Mater. 

Incident ly. the total registration for 
this academic year is 1700 students, 
an increase over last year. Of this 
number the Freshmen class contrib- 
utes 600 members, which is also an in- 
crease over the previous t'rosh class.

Cumberland Group Plans 

Alumni Rally January 2 

With the recovery of Brooke Whit- 
ing, '98, the Cumberland group is 
planning several get-togethers this 
year. One will be when Maryland 
encounters West Virginia in basket- 
ball at Cumberland January 2. 

The Cumberland group has always 
been one of the most active groups of 
the association, and only because of 
the serious illness of their president, 
Brooke Whiting, did they miss the an- 
nual affair last year, but plans are 
going forward to make up for lost 
time. 

Many counties will have organized 
groups before the season is over. 
Several have taken the initial step 
and real get-togethers are planned.

Alimni Association Annual Dues., 



$2.00 



Your Association Needs Dues 

.Many alumni are interested in keep- 
ing in touch with their Alma .Mater 
and want to see an association of 
alumni progress, but forget that finan- 
cial assistance is necessary in order to 
successfully carry on the program. 
In a lew instances it is the economic 
conditions, in some it is procrastina- 
tion, but in others we Tear it is a lack 
of interest for not sending in their 
dues. 

Dues are ammunition with which 
the Association must go into action, 
without which the usefulness and pro- 
gress of the Association is seriously 
curtailed. 

Manv loyal alumni have paid their 
dues of $2.00, for which the Associa- 
tion is grateful, but the total amount 
received is not sufficient to meet the 
annual budget requirements. 

A few more than 300 have paid 
for this year, which is a small per- 
centage of the total list, and at least 
more are needed to keep the Asso- 
ciation out of the red. 

Alumni, your Association needs 
your help.

THE BUDGET CUT 

The Alumni Association of the Uni- 
versity feels that it is not real econ- 
omy to balance the State Budget at 
the expense of the State's Educational 
program. To cut severely the Uni- 
versity's present appropriation might 
damage the University for a long 
time to come, tor good faculties are 
hard to build up. It is possible that 
the Governor, in making out his budg- 
et, did not fully realize the extent to 
which he was cutting the University, 
because it is generally felt that he is 
sympathetic towards the Institution. 
It is a constant gratification to the 
Alumni to know the respect in which 
the University is held among educa- 
tional authorities. 

We are not unmindful of the fact 
that the State must balance its budget, 
but the very last thing that should be 
touched is education. Should educa- 
tional economies be absolutely neces- 
sary, it should not iie concentrated in 
one' institution, especially not the State 
University, and at the same time in- 
crease appropriations to other institu- 
tions within the State, to which the 

ite is giving an annual subsidy, 
dly seems in accordance with sound 
procedure. 

Every alumnus and student of the 
University, and there are more than 
10,(1(111 throughout the State, wants his 
diploma to represent the highest 
darda of education. The Util- 
ity is rendering an unparalleled 
iie State, and to deprive 

of the younj n of ed- 

tional opportunities it offers, is not 
ml judgment and is a Bhort-sighted 
polii

of the visiting lacrosse team, which 
will travel to England next fall to give 
a series of exhibition games in la- 
crosse. 

While a student here Miss Bonthron 
was deeply interested in women's 
sports as well as her studies in Home 
Economics. As a coed athlete she 
gained an All-Maryland rating on 
every Varsity team during her sopho- 
more year. In her junior year she 
held a position on every class team. 

In addition to these activities Miss 
Bonthron was a member of Theta 
Gamma, Women's Senior Honor So- 
ciety, the Debating Council, and acted 
on the Advisory Board of the M. C. A. 
and the standard committee. 

Miss Bonthron was asked to be a 
member of the visiting good will la- 
crosse team, which has as its pur- 
pose the popularizing of the famous 
Indian game in the Old World. The 
dissemination of knowledge pertain- 
ing to lacrosse will be accomplished 
by actual games and by moving pic- 
tures of the games.

Year-book Changes Name 

Much to the surprise of many old 
timers, the annual year-book, hereto- 
fore known as the Reveille, will be 
known henceforth as the Terrapin. 
This is the result of a vote of the stu- 
dent body, showing only four dissent- 
ing votes, and the unanimous vote of 
the Student Executive Committee. 

The name "Reveille" had its incep- 
tion in the year 1897, when the year- 
book first began at the College Park 
Schools, then known as the Maryland 
Agricultural College, and primarily a 
military institution. It was known by 
this name until 1921 and 1922, two 
years after the University's consoli- 
dation, when a joint year-book with 
the Baltimore Schools was published, 
known as the Terrea Maria. In 1923 
and 24 no book was published, but 
when resumed in 1925 the name Re- 
veille was again used. 

The student body now feels that the 
Reveille was symbolical of the Mili- 
tary School, and as we are no longer 
a strictly military institution, the 
name Terrapin would be more appro- 
priate.

: 



Maryland was to close its preten- 
tious in with one of its 
many twin bills of the year on March 
11. by playing Georgetown in basket- 
ball and staging a boxing meet with 
Catholic U. 

With boxing setting the pace, the 
Terps' indoor season, with basket-ball 
and track being the other sports, has 
been successful and interesting. But 
there will be a great deal more about 
this in the next issue when there will 
be a review of the season and a sched- 
ule of the spring sports' program 
which will be unusually heavy. 

* * * 

Maryland's freshman basket-ball 
team has -.raveling forward in 

Waverly Wheeler, who registered 
points while the young- Ten 
winning two of their first three games. 

He and "Young Knocky" Thoi: 
guard, who is ineligible to compete 
this season on account of repeating 
mester of freshman work, will be 
ng bidders for varsity berths a 
year hence. In fact, the chances are 
that both will make the regular quint.

Lyman McAboy. 155 or 1G5, and 
Stew McCaw. 105 or 175. are the only 
boxers Coach Jack Harnony will lose 
from his 1935 team. But they are a

Football Card For 1935 Is 
Of "Rose Bowl" Caliber 

MARYLAND has arranged what 
one writer termed a "Rose Bowl" 
football schedule for next fall. It is 
just that, as it contains ten tough 
games, with the far South, mid-West 
and North being represented by 
powerful teams. 

Florida, Indiana and Syracuse pro- 
vide the big intersectionaJ flavor and 
the latter two will be among the four 
teams of note that will be met in the 
Baltimore Stadium. 

Syracuse will offer the Thanksgiv- 
ing day attraction next fall, but start- 
ing in 1936 a series of turkey day games 
in Baltimore will be played with 
Washington and Lee, a Southern Con- 
ference rival that has furnished great 
games for the Old Liners for ten 
years. They are SO well matched 
that each has won five of the ten 
tilts staged.

Proving the sensation of the indoor 
athletic season, Maryland's i»> 

stepped to unusual heights when the\ 
held the Virginia team to a l-all tie 

iii a match at Charlottesville on l 
ruary Hi. 

It was the first time in '2'.\ meets that 
the Cavaliers had been stopped short 
of a victory and the deadlock was al 
most as much a blow as if they had 
been defeated. 

This sent the Terps into the South-

decisive wins over V.M.I. , Richmond

Maryland's lacrossers, who have 
seven games with collegiate rivals, 
will open their season on March 30 
by playing an alumni combination to 
tune up for the game with Harvard

Coach Jack Faber has written to

not heard from him direct, who are fit 
and willing to play, he would 1 i L. -

Must Have Your Dues 
It was pointed out at the annual 
meeting last year that unless more 
paid memberships were received in 
the Alumni Association that the full 
program could not be carried on 
throughout the year. In spite of this 
by a majority vote of those attending 
tiie annual meeting, it was decided to 
carry on the present program, of 
which the publishing of the ALUMNI 
NEWS was the main issue. 

This has been carried on to date, 
but unless more members pay their 
dues in the Association for this year 
the Treasury will finish with a deficit. 
This I do not believe any alumnus 
would want to see. Therefore it de- 
pends on those who have not paid their 
dues for this year to send them into 
the Treasurer at once.

eration of Women's Clubs, headed by 
Mrs. Randolph Allen, will hold dedi- 
catory exercises for the formal garden 
planting al Margaret Brent Hall. 

At 3:30 P. M., the annual May Day 

I ■ -tival by the Junior Girls will be 

ented, at which time the coveted 

crown of Queen of the May will be

having annual alumni banquets. 

All during the day a bureau of in- 
formation will be found in the Library 
near the top of the hill. 

Annual Meeting 

On Saturday, May 4, Alumni regis- 
tration will begin at 8:30 A. M., at the 
University Gymnasium, which will be 
alumni headquarters. Auto parking 
and rest-room facilities are conveni- 
ently available. The annual meeting 
will be held in the Gym at 10:00 A. M., 
at which time certain business matters 
will be discussed and officers for the 
ensuing year will be elected. Special 
places will be prepared for class re- 
unions, which will immediately follow 
the meeting. 

Baseball between Georgetown and 
Maryland will begin at 11:30 at the 
stadium. A barbeque lunch will be 
available for the Alumni between 12 
and 2:00 P. M., in the rear of the east 
stands at the stadium. Meals will be

land will engage Syracuse University 
in lacrosse. 

As a climax to the day's program 
the highly attractive supper dance 
will be held in the University Gym 
immediately following the lacrosse 
game. This feature of the program 
has been so successful when held in 
the past that it is advisable to make 
your reservations as early as possible. 

Room Accommodations 
Special arrangementte have been 
made near by for room accommoda- 
tions for those alumni who attend the 
two day program. Also those who 
wish to ji'o into Washington may go 
the Colonial Hotel, where Bob 
Blackstone, '2<i, is manager, at a 
nominal charge. These reservations, 
however, must be made with the 
Alumni Office in advance. 

Mark it on your calendar NOW. 
I in not miss this reunion, the greatest 
ever held. 

The committee on the reunion pro- 
ni is headed by II. B. Derrick, 
and assisted by Miss Josephine Bland- 
ford. '27, and L. M. Silvester. Tl, 
president of "M" Club. 



Field Day To Offer More 
Action Than Ever Before 

"1/IARYLAND has had some lively 
■"■*■ Field Days in the past, but the 
one to be held this year on May 4 will 
eclipse all others in amount of action. 

Baseball, track, lacrosse and tennis 
make up the card and it will take a lot 
of legging and eyeing to see all that 
transpires. 

Including the 13 open scholastic 
events, the six closed to county high 
schools of the State, the 14 in the 
triangular meet among the Maryland, 
Washington and Lee and Virginia 
Tech varsities and the 13 in the Terp 
freshmen's dual affair with Gallaudet, 
there will be a total of 46 track finals, 
not to mention the heats in the dashes, 
hurdles and some others. 

Georgetown will offer the opposition 
in baseball. Catholic U. will invade 
for tennis, and Syracuse, one of the 
north's leaders, will figure in the stick 
battle that will fittingly close the 
program. 

A detailed schedule of the events 
will be found elsewhere in the news. 

It will be a "hot time in the old 
town."

Ivan Nedomatsky. 136, and Stew 
McCaw, light-heavy, won Conference 
titles, the latter repeating, and Lyman 
IfcAboy, 165-pounder, assuredly would 
have brought home the honors in his 
class had he not broken his hand in 
winning his semifinal. Nedomatsky, 
rated the ace of all boxers of his 
weight in the country, also broke his 
thumb in taking his title, and Lieut. 
Jack Harmony, Maryland's unmateh- 
able coach, won over the Army and 

tholic U. without these two great 
scrappers. 

The three mentioned with Walter 
Webb, 145 pounder, were the leaders 
on the team. There were others of 
great worth, of course, notably Jimmy 
Young, 115, but space won't permit 
mentioning them all.

Willi- All-state Choice 

VIC WILLIS, who was picked as all- 
te center; Al Waters, forward, 
and Bernie Buscher, who played up 
front or at guard, were the outstand- 
ing trio on the basket-ball team, they 
played more consistently than the 
others, although Buscher was out for 
nearly three weeks with an injured

At that it was the third time in 11

Only two fellows who have been

Jack Harmony took charge three years 
ago. Both will be graduated next 
June and will leave big gaps in the 
line-up. They are sportsmen as well 
as athle - 



Headley, a soph, did some fancy run- 
ning in the half mile in three meets. 
Headley, Evans with Bob Archer and 
Milo Sonen made up the mile relay

All Spring Teams Appear 
Sure To Be Tough Foemen 

jVlAi: , i LAND'S spring teams In la- 
-L" erosse, baseball, track and ten- 
nis will take part in 19 contests during 

the Beason now near at hand and they 
should make the going rather tOUgh 
for their rivals. 

Swede Eppley makes no bones of 
the fact that with Karl Widmyer and 

Joe Ryan in the dashes, Milo Sonen, 
l>ol> Archer. Warren Kvans. Coleman 
Headley. Joe Calligor. Bob Beal] and 

Don Ashton as his leading runners, 
Bill Guckeyson, Tracy Coleman and 
Hob Boucher in the field events; Bob 
Slye and Willard Beers, in the hurdles 
and jumps, and Barley Drake in the 

pole vault he has the nucleus of the 
best team he ever coached. 

* * * 

nURT SHIPLEY'S ball team will be 
** a success if he can find a first 
sacker and get the proper kind of 
pitching to combat a hard 24 game 
schedule. Steve I'hysioc and Vic Wil- 
lis are the mainstays on the mound, 
with Foster Mathias and Ford Loker, 
two sophs, as the most promising 
rookies. 

Bob Love, Harry Clark and John 
Gormley, catchers; Norwood Sothoron, 
Dick Nelson, Don Bartoo and Jack 
Stonebraker, infielders, and Charlie 
Keller, Jake Hartenstien and Ed Daly, 
outfielders, appear to be the players 
who will have to carry the burden. 
Lyman McAboy, third sacker, will be 
missed for a time on account of the 
injury to his hand in boxing. 

Love, the Handy Andy of the squad, 
can play the outfield or pitch, and if 
Clark and Gormley can carry on be- 
hind the bat he may be seen in various 
roles. 

* * * 

JACK FABER and Al Heagy, who 
handled the lacrosse squad for the 
three weeks Faber remained with the 
gridders in the spring toil, apparently 
will have a stick team that will be in 
the race. 

Jack Kelly, goal, and brother of Jim, 
and Charlie Ellinger, attack, are the 
only rookies to break into the first 
team tentative lineup. The defense is 
led by Sam Silber, Leonard Rombro, 
Jim Hart, Lou Ennis, all letter men, 
and Charlie Yaeger, while the offense 
centers around Ike Rabbitt, center; 
Ramsay Thomas and Herb Brill, out- 
side attacks, and John Christhilf and 
Ellinger, homes. 

Christhilf and Ellinger should I 
best pair of homes playing [aero 
this season.

Phi Sig's Observe Founders Day 

Founders Day for Phi Sigma Kappa 
was observed by the Alumni and ac- 
tive members of Eta Chapter of the 
University, and Sigma Chapter of St. 
John's College of Annapolis, at a ban- 
quet at the Southern Hotel in Balti- 
more on March 16 last. Phi Sigma 
Kappa was founded at Amherst Col- 
lege in 1873 and established at Mary- 
land in 1921. 

Among more than one hundred 
alumni present for the banquet we 
found Bill Press, '28, president of the 
Eta Alumni Group, Dr. Eugene B. 
Daniels, faculty advisor.

Alumni and Students Present 
University With New Flag Pole 

A new 80ft. flag pole will be pre- 
sented to the University as a result 
of contributions by the Alumni Asso- 
ciation, the Student Government As- 
sociation and the class of '34. The 
pole will be erected before the Annual 
Alumni Reunion on May 4, at which 
time appropriate presentation cere- 
monies will be held. 

The location of the new pole as 
suggested by the architect will be 
in front of the Library at the inter- 
section of the center axis of the 
Library and the Agriculture Building. 

A special design for the base has 
been drawn by Maj. Howard W. 
Cutler, architect. The new base will 
not be completed by Alumni Day be- 
cause of insufficient funds. The base 
provides a place for the memorial 
plaques which used to be on the old 
gateway to the campus. 

Credit for the concerted efforts in 
the purchase of the new pole goes to 
the late J. Enos Ray, president of the 
Alumni Association, Edward Quinn, 
former president of the Student Gov- 
ernment, and Norwood Sothoron, pres- 
ident of t lie class of 1934. 



was a football player of considerable 
note on the earliest teams to make 
football history at Maryland. He was 
a member of the team of '93, '94, and 
'95 and left an enviable record.

Plenty of Delectable Sporting 

Varsity 

THIS is sports hash, it had to be as 
a review of the winter season was 
riven in the last issue oi the News and 
•JT sports just were getting under- 
when this was banged off the old 
writer. 
Little had happened up to the time 
this was written in the way of out- 
door pastimes for L935, the varsity 
stickmen, however, had taken the 
sure of the Alumni by a seme of 
11 to 1 at College Park on March 30, 
and on April 4 the Harvard stiekmen 
tims of a 11 to defeat. 
Burton Shipley's haseballers made an 
imp: art by defeating Cornell 

:utive days 

and followed up by trimming Harvard 

2 the next day. 

But enough had been shown by the 

baseball, track and tennis 

teams in their preparation for the 49- 

event varsity card to indicate that the 

Old Liners should be well on the right 

side of the ledger when the summing 

up is done the latter part of May. 

Good Proirram Left 

By the time this was figured to get 

:he hands of the grads, 21 of the 

airs carded were due to have been 

rained out or something, 

but leaving plenty of delectable dishes 

for the alumni to consume before 

commencement is held. 

Take a look at the schedules, par- 
ticularly the one for Field Day, May 4, 
and you will rind ample to give you a 
good excuse to have to come to College 
Park "on business" 

* * * 

WITH the Varsity and Freshman 
squads busily engaged in four 
pastimes each and the intramuralites 
swarming around like bees, even the 
spacious athletic facilities at College 
Park are being taxed. 

It is not a theory but a well estab- 
lished fact that healthy bodies make 
ng minds and keeping a student fit 
in important part of educational 
life nowadays. Maryland is doing its 
best to coordinate the two factors in 
the proper proportions and is succeed- 
ing remarkably well.

Many On Varsity Squads 

NINETY-FOUR of these who are 
doing their "daily dozen" are as- 
pirants on varsity teams. Swede 
ley leads the parade with 35 on 
rack combination, Jack Faber and 
Al Heagy <-ome next with the stick- 
pley has 20 on his

were left after the seasonal sports 
claimed the men they needed to carry 
on. Only a few more than 20 were 
left to don grid suits and with practice 
not compulsory at Maryland, like it is 
most places, only about 65 per cent of 
the bunch showed up any one day. 

However, two scrimmages were held 
with Catholic University and a half 
dozen or so of the boys, linemen and 
backs, gave great promise of being a 
lot of help to the varsity next fall. 

But anyone who tries to tell you that 

ing football practice is welcomed 

by gridders at any school is (riving you 

the bunk, being particularly burden- 

those uho want to play ba 
ball, laci tennis or do their bit 

for the track team. When a fell.. a 
mind and heart on something 
else it is just plain drudg' 



\ araitj Minimi Lacrosse 

THAI' lacrosse game between the 
varsity and grads was an enjoyable 

affair and a lot more interesting ami 
hard fought than the score indicated. 

The "old boys" still knew their onions 
and most of them retained there mast- 
ery of the shillelah, but their legs 
wouldn't pound up and down the field 
like they did in the days gone by. That 
was the main difference in the teams. 

.More than 20 grads came back to 
play in the game, including Bus Pfau, 
Joe Deckman, Morris Nicholson, Jim 
Kelly, Herman Epstein, Gordon Pugh, 
Fred Stieber, Jimmy Lee. Sam Crosth- 
wait, Ed Ronkin, Gabby Streett, Bob 
Snyder, Harry Wilson, George Hocken- 
smith, Hill Wood, Prank Hawkins, Bill 
Beatty, Skip Faber. Doug Smink and 
Emmett Loane. 

Gus Crothers was back but he took 
up most of the side lines instead of 
playing and Fred Invent izzi also had to 
look on because of a shoulder injured 
in practicing with the Baltimore A. C. 
team, a newcomer to the Monumental 
City lacrosse ranks. 

Most of the boys were in pretty 
good trim. Of course, Jim Kelly 
wasn't. As someone said, "Kelly never 
was in shape when he was all-America 
goalie, why should he be in condition 
now." 

"Chief" Beatty, who fliwered all the 
way from Long Branch, N. J., got the 
grads' lone marker. He said he 
couldn't travel all that distance for 
nothing. Herman Epstein was an ac- 
cessory to the crime, handing Beatty a

THERE are only seven of the 94 
members on the four Terp spring 
sports squads who are not from Mary- 
land or the District of Columbia, and 
all the coaches are former Old Line

An unusual feature of the track 
squad is that 19 of the 35 aspirants 
are field events men. Eppley has 
plenty of points among his runners and 
if the field contigent can come through 
in a fair manner, it will be just too 
bad for the other fellows. At any 
rate, it bids fail- to be the best track 
team ever at College Park.
